Event description
Join us for a late night opening at Locomotion, where we’ll host a special evening of Spoken Word brilliance.

About this Event

Three fantastic Spoken Word Artists will explore the themes of gender equality and destructive cultural pressures using their individual styles. Delivered in partnership with Daisy Arts’ youth theatre group WASH, this will be fantastic opportunity to get the conversation flowing around gender roles and the ‘harmful boxes’ we often feel that we have to fit in to in order to be accepted.

This special evening of Spoken Word will be a brilliant chance for poetry newcomers to experience the wonderful world of poetry without being overwhelmed, and for regulars to discover some outstanding talent from across the country.Our line-up for the night includes:

Emily Pritchard

Emily Pritchard is a poet and performer based in York, whose work centres around family, queerness, and the body. Her performances are full of a wonderful energy and she has competed in the Roundhouse and BBC Fringe Slams, and hosted Slay on Words slam in York.

Dan Webber

The stand-up poet, reluctant bear and attempted vegan, strips away labels of life, love, the arts and the LGBTQ+ community in his fast-paced, honest and hilarious show - Genre Fluid – of which Dan will treat the audience to a selection of poems from. 'Sentimental musings on self, mental health, masculinity, appearance, and place, delivered with a playful and giddy appeal' (LeftLion.co.uk)

Julie Easley

Julie Easley is a performance poet, and event’s organiser/host for the Saltburn DiVerse night, a monthly cabaret of ‘other voices.’ Her writing is narrative driven and inspired by those who speak their truth and her poetry aims to give a voice to the silent: drawing upon universal issues including gender equality/norms, domestic violence; colonialism, and immigration.

We’ll then host an open-mic session offering first timers a supportive environment to perform on stage.

Come along for what's going to be a fantastic night of entertainment!
